Subtitled : Scienc-y Stuff Staring You In The Face.

Let the brains behind the hugely successful Festival of the Spoken Nerd take you on a rib-tickling, experiment-fuelled adventure to explain the everyday science staring you in the face.

Why is it impossible to spin your right foot clockwise while you draw a 6 with your right hand?

Can you extract DNA from a strawberry daiquiri?

Would you make love like a praying mantis?

Should you book a holiday on Earth 2.0?

This is a delightful romp through science at every level, from how to make a cocktail using octoploid DNA to what the meaningless end of the Cosmos will be like. 

Steve Mould and Helen Arney are two thirds of science comedy phenomenon Festival of the Spoken Nerd. As a trio they have appeared on QI, created their own experimental* comedy show 'Domestic Science' for Radio 4, toured their stand-up science shows to over 50,000 nerds (and non-nerds) and accumulated millions of views on YouTube.
